Scott, Klingbeil, 59, of Ukiah, CA, passed away after a long series of health issues, in Stanford Hospital, Palo Alto, CA, on April 14, 2021, with his loving family at his side.
Scott Wayne was born on October 24, 1961, in San Mateo. His parents, Betty (Schmidt) and Jackson Klingbeil, lived in a few towns before settling in Ukiah. While in the local high school, Scott was an active drummer, playing in the school's jazz band and marching band, traveling the state with the latter. He played in the Rose Bowl Parade and competed in Victoria, British Columbia. Outside of class, Scott drummed for a local rock n' roll band. Before he graduated in 1980, Scott enlisted in the US Army. Following boot camp, Scott served in Alaska and Germany. He enjoyed Germany the most: the people, the places, and (lest we forget) the beer! Following his honorable discharge, he returned home to California in 1984.
That same year, while Scott was enrolled in a business college in Santa Rosa, he met Paulette Bergeron. They were married not too long afterward, on October 12, 1985, in St. Eugene's Cathedral, Santa Rosa. In 1987, the couple moved to Ukiah, where Scott worked for Parducci Wine Cellars. He retired as their warehouse manager in 2015.
Scott had a big personality and was a huge jokester. He loved telling stories and pulling pranks. He enjoyed spending time with family sitting around the table, barbecuing, and sharing a good meal. He always looked forward to impromptu neighborhood potlucks and block parties. He liked to camp at Hat Creek, his favorite fishing spot; go the coast; and fish anywhere else that he could. He was a fan of NASCAR at Sears Point and SF Giants baseball. He was a proud member of the Ukiah Kiwanis Club and served as their president twice. And in all of this, Scott never lost his early love for the drums.
Most importantly, however, Scott loved his kids. He was proud of the adults they became and was so looking forward to being a grandfather this May. He will continue to watch over us and look out for his grandson, Scott Douglas Klingbeil.
He was a genuinely good man, friend, husband and father.
Scott is survived by his wife, Paulette; son, Michael (Ashley) and grandson, Scott Douglas of Andersen, CA; daughter, Katherine (DJ) Quiambao of Seattle, WA; mother, Betty; sisters, Gaylene (Roger) Bartholf, Jennifer (Tim) Burger; mother-in-law, Eleanor Bergeron; siblings-in-law, Patrice Quadrel and Brad Bergeron; nieces and nephews and their families, Joseph, Jeremiah, and Christopher Bartholf, Kimberly Burger, Bri Burger, Peter Quadrel, and Patrice D. Quadrel; his extended Narlock and Bergeron families; and his Leland Lane and 50-Acre Families.
He was preceded in death by his father, Walter Elwell; adopted father, Jackson Klingbeil; father-in-law, Jerome Bergeron; and grandparents, Christian and Eunice Schmidt and Nellie Klingbeil.
